BETTY is a five-piece pop rock band fronted by Elizabeth Ziff, Alyson Palmer and Amy Ziff (L to R above) from New York City. The band's unique sound is a blend of tight harmonies layered over rocking guitars and a solid rhythm section. Since 1986, BETTY has performed memorable live shows full of exciting, hook-laden songs, clever word play and manic energy in clubs, theatres and arenas all over the world.
BETTY has recorded seven albums, including their latest "not-so-happy-holidays" cd, Snowbiz. In addition to gigging and recording, BETTY wrote and starred in a hit Off-Broadway show, BETTY RULES (directed by Michael "Rent" Greif) now touring in other cities. They write music for television and films, including the theme songs for Showtime Television's most popular show The L Word, HBO's Real Sex and Comedy Central's Out On The Edge. Their acting appearances on The L Word have catapulted this deeply beloved cult band to wilder international recognition.
Activists originally from Washington DC, BETTY began as an edgy a'cappella/spoken word/techno-beat trio known for fighting fiercely for causes in which they believe. Fierce Elizabeth (vocals, guitar), funky Alyson (vocals, bass) and funny Amy (vocals, cello) are the songwriters and arrangers, while virtuoso guitarist Tony Salvatore and sizzling drummer Mino Gori complete the band.
